1 Serving - Regular rolled oats are a better choice than quick or instant, but use the heartier Irish or steel-cut oats if you can find them. They have the lowest glycemic index of the bunch.
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup oats
- pinch of salt (optional)
- Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan. Add a pinch of salt if you like. Sprinkle in the oats and turn the head down to low. Stir if you like creamy oats or don't stir if you like more distinct grains. Cook until most of the liquid is absorbed, about 6-7 minutes.
